What is a Youth Committee?

 

Also known as a Youth Steering Group, Youth Voice or Youth Council. The best bit about a Youth Committee is that it is Youth Led, so it can be whatever young people want it to be! In the early stages it’s about establishing the core values that each Youth Committee member will respect and demonstrate.

A Youth Committee is all about giving all young people a platform to express themselves and make positive changes with Youth Development and aspects within the local community.

An important part of a Youth Committee is bringing young people together with diverse experiences, knowledge, perspectives, backgrounds, identities, and cultural differences to work together inspire one another, Youth Workers and young people and adults.

As a Youth Committee develops, young people will play vital role in decision-making with Youth Workers and will be given the opportunity to lead on and initiate action.
